I still haven't heard from Dave C.  I have downloaded the application
that Bastien used, haven't tried it yet but it looks straightforward
to use.  It produces files using open formats, which can be converted
to the more popular non open formats.  I should be able to create some
recordings like Bastien made and put them on shell.sugarlabs.org where
Dave could download them.  He could then edit them, add music or
narration, title cards or whatever.  So what remains is this:

1).  What video formats can he work with?

2).  What do you want demonstrated?  What Activities, what functions
in each?  I can certainly use children's books in the demos.  Do you
have suggestions for which ones might be used?

3).  Is Dave still interested in this?  If so, have him email me.
